Part Description

LP16813-5   Clostridioides difficile
Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) is a species of bacteria of the genus Clostridium which are gram-positive, anaerobic, spore-forming rods. It is the most significant cause of pseudomembranous colitis , a severe infection of the colon, often after normal gut flora is eradicated by the use of antibiotics. Treatment consists of stopping any antibiotics and administering specific anticlostridial antibiotics such as metronidazole.

Change Reason
The PrThr property is used for LOINC terms whose results are reported using an ordered categorical scale, regardless of whether or not an internal threshold was used to make that determination. This change was approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016; Updated genus name from Clostridium to Clostridioides based on current (2019) accepted nomenclature for this genus [PMID:27370902].
